Prostar,Barefoot 200 Driver Seat Repair??????

The studs have pulled out of the 2 front points, and one of the aft points on the plastic/nylon seat. Does anyone have any experience with a repair or way to reattach the studs? It's not a good ride as is. Thanks, Jeff

if you need new metal sliders, MC dealers would stock them.

If you're talking about the base of the seat coming apart, you'll have to get creative, take it apart, replace the studs with stainless bolts or install T-nuts

I will try to get pics this evening. My problem isn't the metal sliders, the studs in the underside of the seat have pulled out.

I'm sure the proper way to repair it would be with fiberglass and resin, but do you think slightly larger screws would work? That's where I would start!

Unfortunately the seat is made of plastic, so not sure I can get glass and resin to take. I will see if I can get some pictures tonight. I appreciate the ideas, I just recovered the seats, so I want to make it as easy and painless as possible, so I don't do anything to the new vinyl.

Ahhhhhh I understand now. Wow, looks like you pulled the washer through. I would remove the seat and track, then assess the situation if that can be fixable with a larger washer or something. Maybe epoxy?
